    This was all Jenny’s Sanford’s fault, she let herself “go” and forced
    Mark to outsource their martial relations to Argentina. Now Jenny is one
    of the “takers” that Mitt warned us about with her excessive alimony
    and so called “child support” demands! Typical lazy and unmotivated US
    worker that Mark so often talks about! Besides, Nikki supports Mark
    Sanford – Adulterers are US! or is it “Birds of a feather?”

    Mark only used our Tax Dollars because he could get some hot Argentina
    poontang, and any red blooded family values guy can understand that, I
    understand why his hysterical and emotional opponent does not. Besides,
    Governor Sanford already told us at his press conference that he asked
    Jesus if it was ok to outsource his marital relations to Argentina. Mark
    told us that Jesus told him yes, so who are we to judge his actions as

    Further, his son put Mark in a bad situation (and should
    apologize to SC Voters) by wanting to leave the Superbowl party. What
    was Mark to do – the only place this new technology called “Television”
    is available is in downtown Charleston and Jenny’s house.
